I've been coveting the original Eames chairs from Design Within Reach for a while, and could not justify spending that kind of crazy money for them (I think they're about $600 apiece). These are really good knock-offs, and they blend wonderfully with our 1970's table and 1920s dining room. The white plastic shells are less shiny than the photo shows, and the seat height is a little lower than 17", but neither is a problem. They're comfortable to boot! Arrived two days after we ordered them.
